The CGT is an evolution of the “A” series scooter, the “GT” standing for Gran Turismo. The scooter debuted at the 1950 Geneva Show and was the first called the “Popolare” then the “Normale” finally setting on CGT.  It has the same engine layout as a CSL, but without body panels to cover the powerplant. The front portion of the scooter used essentially the same components as the CSL. With the exposed engine, the cost saving were considerable; the CGT sold for 175.000 Lira making it very competitive with its rivals. With 6 HP and 4 gears, the CGT could attain 80 kph. With its pressed steel frame, the CGT weighed 86 kg.
